Maybe he had kids earlier and theyíve moved out by now so can downsize?

Get cash $650k. Put in fixed deposits to get $20k pa in interest

I will spend $3k pm ($36k pa) in retirement from age 55 to 65, total $360k over 10 years. Income from interest and drawdown from fixed deposits account.

At 65, I will collect $2.5k pm ($30k pa) from my CPF Life. My CPF OA is about $200k, can generate cash of $5k pa. Fixed deposits $10k pa. Passive income $45k pa. This is more than enough for food, utilities, health care and public transport for one retired person.

2.5kpm? That's a peasant's life.

Unregistered Thanks for sharing. You gave me a good idea to retire too.
I can sell my 5 room unit for $300k and then I can buy a 2 room unit for $200k.
I will then have $300k cash which I can spend for my retirement for 10 years. I also will get CPF Life about $1500 pm from 65 years onwards.

Unregistered Excellent retirement plan. This shows you donít need to have multi million dollars in the bank to retire. No need to work so hard until health is affected. High risk of dying early. So donít be stupid. Lead a simple, relaxed life. To retire well, we donít need a big expensive house or a million dollar sports car. Just need a small HDB flat and travel by bus. Not much worries. Men are addicted to riches. Only the wise knows when to stop.

Unregistered 32M...

Left my 7k/mth job at 28 to pursue private tuition. I was in STEM.


I teach primary , secondary , JC math/physics/chemistry in huge groups. ( I have over 200 students at the moment...) Free rental room from a friend staying in landed. (other than treating him good dinner)

I teach part time at poly, 2 times a week in the morning since all the kids in school.

Monthly ranging from 35k to 50k after CPF. CPF contribution little for me cos I collect hard cash or paylah/paynow from parents/kids.


Planning to hire some good part time tutors to conduct classes for me. I wrote my own notes, questions I modified from online/assessment books, and set my own papers. Very tiring for me. Every weekend sat/sun just burn like that. Teach from morning 8am to at night 10pm.
